    I like the new Firewall module in Plesk Reloaded .. BUT .. how can i open a RANGE of ports (for example 49152:65534 for passive ftp). I can't type more than 5 characters in the port textbox.

    Looks like the firewall module is not very usefull after all.

    BTW: i do not have root acces .. only Plesk admin access. But if absolutely necessary .. i can get in contact with my HSP for root stuff.

    Please help.

    Here is a hack that may help. It does require root access:

    Add the following rule:

    Allow incoming tcp port 32768

    Activate the firewall.

    Edit /usr/local/psa/var/modules/firewall-activate.sh to change 32768 to 32768:65000

    Execute activate-firewall.sh

    You would have to edit and activate after each change to the rules. It appears that the script is generated from the mySQL database.

    It appears that SW-Soft could fix the problem by adding a second field that would define a range.
